    Ontario reported a considerable drop in new COVID-19 cases and deaths on Monday, which could be partially explained by a corresponding fall in testing rates to the lowest point seen in two weeks.

    The province reported 2,578 new cases and 24 new deaths on Monday, on the strength of 40,000 test specimens, or 20,000 fewer than what was processed the day before.

    Ontario reported 3,422 new cases on Sunday and 3,056 on Saturday.

    The seven-day average now stands at 3,074, which is down 10 per cent from this time last week (3,394).

    "Locally, there are 815 new cases in Toronto, 507 in Peel, 151 in York Region, 151 in Niagara and 121 in Hamilton," Health Minister Christine Elliott wrote on Twitter.

    Approximately 421 people have died of novel coronavirus infection in the past seven days. Fourteen of the 24 deaths reported on Monday involved residents of the long-term care system.

    Monday’s case total is the lowest Ontario has seen since Jan. 1...

      Ont. reports fewer than 2,000 new COVID-19 cases amid big drop in testing
      Ontario is reporting less than 2,000 COVID-19 cases amid technical issues at Toronto Public Health and spurious declines in other regions.

      Ontario is recording fewer than 2,000 new cases of COVID-19 today, however only 34,000 tests were processed over the past 24 hours and the province said cases reported by Toronto Public Health were likely underreported due to a "technical issue."

      Provincial health officials logged 1,913 new cases today, the lowest number of infections reported in a single day in over a month. But just 34,531 tests were completed yesterday, the fewest number of tests completed in a 24-hour period since Dec. 29.

      A spokesperson for the province confirmed this morning that Toronto Public Health, which reported 550 cases today, experienced a "technical issue," resulting in what was likely an underreporting of new cases.

      Toronto reported 815 new cases on Monday, 1,035 new infections on Sunday, and 903 cases on Saturday...

        Vaccine delays a 'major' but 'temporary' roadblock

        The province is reporting another 89 deaths linked to COVID-19 and more than 2,600 new infections today.

        Ontario health officials logged 2,655 new cases of the disease caused by the novel coronavirus today, a notable jump from the 1,913 recorded on Tuesday but still fewer than the 2,961 cases confirmed one week ago.

        The province saw a corresponding spike in testing over the last 24 hours, with 54,307 tests processed yesterday, up from just 34,000 one day prior.

        According to data released by the Ministry of Health, the provincewide test positivity rate now stands at 4.9 per cent, down from six per cent seven days ago.

        The seven-day average of new infections continues to drop, declining to 2,849 from nearly 3,500 last Wednesday. The number of active cases has also fallen to 26,467, down from 29,636 one week ago.

        Of the new cases reported today, 925 are in Toronto, which logged 550 new cases one day earlier. The province said yesterday that Toronto's daily case wount was likely artificially low due to a "technical issue" that the public health unit encountered.

        Another 473 new cases were confirmed in Peel Region today along with 226 in York Region and 179 in Windsor-Essex County.

        Niagara Region, which saw its daily case count dip to just 52 on Tuesday, reported another 129 infections today...

          Ontario is reporting more than 2,600 new cases of the novel coronavirus with an almost 16,000 jump in processed tests compared to the previous day.

          Provincial health officials recorded 2,632 new COVID-19 cases on Thursday and 46 more deaths. It should be noted that a technical issue reported by Toronto Public Health earlier this week is now resolved, with 102 cases added to today’s total from earlier days, according to the Ministry of Health.

          Of the latest deaths, 33 were among long-term care home residents. A total of 3,307 long-term care home residents have died from COVID-19 across the province, representing 59 per cent of Ontario’s 5,614 virus-related deaths since the pandemic started last March.

          There are currently 254 long-term care homes and 165 retirement homes with an active outbreak of the virus.

          Roberta Place in Barrie is one of the province’s hardest-hit long-term care homes which is currently dealing with a significant outbreak where 122 residents and 69 staff members are infected with the virus. Nineteen residents have died from the virus, according to the local public health unit.

          Ontario logged 2,655 new COVID-19 cases on Wednesday, 1,913 on Tuesday and 2,578 on Monday.

          The seven-day rolling average now stands at 2,751 compared to 3,387 a week ago. Last week’s average does not include the 450 additional cases reported by Toronto Public Health on Jan. 8.

          In the past 24 hours, 70,256 lab-confirmed tests were conducted across the province, up from 54,307 a day ago...

            Ontario reports 2,662 new COVID-19 cases, 87 more deaths
            Federal government sending 2 mobile health units to the Greater Toronto Area
            CBC News · Posted: Jan 22, 2021 10:32 AM ET | Last Updated: 6 hours ago


            Ontario reported another 2,662 cases of COVID-19 and 87 more deaths linked to the illness on Friday, as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said the federal government will send two mobile health units to assist in the Greater Toronto Area.

            "The spike in COVID-19 cases this month has put a real strain on hospitals," Trudeau said during a morning news conference.

            "For Ontario, in particular, the situation is extremely serious."

            Trudeau said the units will provide up to 200 additional hospital beds as well as medical equipment and supplies, freeing up space in the region's intensive care units.

            In a news release, the federal government said the mobile units are being deployed after a provincial request for assistance, and that they expected to be in the GTA "as rapidly as possible." They are scheduled to remain available to the provincial government until May 1, depending on the COVID-19 trends in Ontario at that time.

            The province will be responsible for staffing the mobile units, the release added.

            The new cases reported today include 779 in Toronto, 542 in Peel Region, 228 in York Region, 128 in Waterloo Region, 188 in Windsor-Essex County and 102 in Halton Region...

                100% attack rate among residents is almost beyond comprehension given the precautions that have been in place

                Edit: for those that aren't following this outbreak, 6 of the positive samples have been sequenced and found to be related to the B.1.1.7 variant. Also, more than 50% of staff have tested positive. The outbreak was declared January 8 meaning it took 15 days from outbreak declared to all 127 residents getting positive test results.

                  Ontario reported 2,417 new cases of COVID-19 and 50 new deaths on Sunday, as the number of active infections has declined by about 20 per cent since the province enacted an emergency stay-at-home order.

                  The 50 deaths reported Sunday increased Ontario’s total to more than 5,800 since the pandemic was declared last March.

                  Half of the deaths reported Sunday involved residents of the long-term care system.

                  Now eleven days into a second state of emergency and stay-at-home order, officials said there were 24,153 known active cases of novel coronavirus infection across the province.

                    Ontario reports 1,958 new COVID-19 cases amid changes to vaccines rollout
                    Ontario will not receive a shipment of Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine this week

                    Ontario reported another 1,958 cases of COVID-19 on Monday, as experts heading the province's vaccination campaign outlined how they are responding to delays in the delivery of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.

                    The new cases in today's update include 727 in Toronto, 375 in Peel Region and 157 in York Region.

                    Other public health units that saw double-digit increases were:

                    Windsor-Essex: 85
                    Niagara Region: 82
                    Durham Region: 62
                    Hamilton: 55
                    Halton Region: 54
                    Ottawa: 51
                    Middlesex-London: 46
                    Simcoe Muskoka: 41
                    Waterloo Region: 39
                    Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph: 35
                    Huron-Perth: 29
                    Southwestern: 28
                    Chatham-Kent: 22
                    Lambton: 19
                    Eastern Ontario: 11
                    Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge: 11

                    (Note: All of the figures used in this story are found on the Ministry of Health's COVID-19 dashboard or in its Daily Epidemiologic Summary. The number of cases for any region may differ from what is reported by the local public health unit, because local units report figures at different times.)

                    It was the fewest number of new infections logged on a single day in nearly a week. The seven-day average of daily cases continued its steady decline down to 2,371, the lowest it has been since Dec. 30, 2020. It has been trending downward since its peak of 3,555 on Jan. 11.

                    Notably, however, Ontario's network of labs processed just 35,968 test samples for the virus despite capacity for more than 70,000 daily. Collectively, they reported a test positivity rate of 5.5 per cent.

                    Another 2,448 cases were marked resolved in today's report. There are now 23,620 confirmed, active infections provincewide.

                    Public health units logged another 43 deaths of people with COVID-19, pushing Ontario's official death toll to 5,846.

                    Meanwhile, at a media briefing this morning, members of Ontario's vaccine distribution task force said the province will delay first doses for health-care workers and essential caregivers amid a shortage of the Pfizer product.

                    Available doses of vaccines will instead be channelled only to residents of long-term care and at-risk retirement homes, as well as First Nations seniors living in elder care settings. The goal is to have all those who fall into one of these groups be given a first dose of vaccine by Feb. 5, 10 days earlier than first planned...

                          TORONTO -- COVID-19 case numbers in Ontario have dropped to levels unseen in more than two months with fewer than 1,700 infections reported Wednesday.

                          The 1,670 new cases are down from the 1,740 reported by the province a day earlier.

                          Moreover, case growth in Ontario appears to be trending downward in recent days with 1,958 infections logged on Monday and 2,417 on Sunday.

                          The province's seven-day average for number of cases reported is 2,205. That number was as high as 2,849 one week ago today. Two weeks ago, that number reached 3,479.

                          Wednesday’s data marks the lowest daily case number reported in Ontario since Nov. 26, when 1,478 infections were added.

                          The province’s COVID-19 case total now stands at 260,370, including deaths and recoveries.

                          Forty-nine of those deaths occurred in the last 24 hours, and at least 25 involved residents of a long-term care home, pushing Ontario’s death toll to 5,958.

                          Another 2,725 cases are now considered to be resolved by the Ministry of Health. Since the pandemic began, 232,480 people previously infected with the novel coronavirus have recovered.

                          And with 55,191 tests processed in the previous day, the province's COVID-19 positivity rate is at 4 per cent. There are currently 21,932 active cases of COVID-19 in Ontario....

                            Ontario is reporting 2,093 new COVID-19 cases and 56 more deaths, as test completion rose significantly on Thursday.

                            Labs completed more than 64,000 tests in the past 24 hours, generating a positivity rate of 3.3 per cent when errors and duplicate tests are accounted for.

                            Labs processed 55,191 tests in the previous 24-hour span.

                            “Locally, there are 700 new cases in Toronto, 331 in Peel, 228 in York Region and 123 in Niagara,” Health Minister Christine Elliott wrote on Twitter.

                            Thirty-one of the fifty-six deaths occurred in residents of long-term care homes.

                            The total lab-confirmed death toll since March in the province now stands at 6,014.

                            It was 4,581 at the start of the month.

                            Ontario reported 1,670 new cases on Wednesday, a decline of about 1,000 from the week before, as well as 1,740 new cases on Tuesday.

                            Thursday’s number sent the seven-day rolling average of cases down to 2,128, from 2,205 one day earlier...

                              TORONTO -- COVID-19 case numbers in Ontario dropped Friday following a single-day increase reported a day earlier.

                              The 1,837 new cases represent a decrease over Thursday’s total when 2,093 were confirmed.

                              Friday’s report pushes the province’s lab-confirmed case total to 264,300, including 6,072 deaths and 237,871 recoveries. At least 58 of those deaths occurred in the last 24-hour period, 32 of which involved long-term care residents.

                              The province said it completed 69,040 COVID-19 tests in the previous day but did not provide a positivity rate.

                              Ontario’s seven-day average for number of infections recorded sits at 2,010, down from the 2,702 a week ago.

                              The government has also started providing the number of novel coronavirus variants found in the province. According to the data, there are 51 cases of the U.K. variant, also known as B.1.1.7, as of Friday.

                              Premier Doug Ford is expected to announce mandatory COVID-19 testing at Ontario’s airports and border crossings Friday to prevent the spread of new variants, a government source told CP24....

                                Another 73 people have died from the disease caused by the novel coronavirus in the past 24-hour span, according to the latest numbers from the Ministry of Health.

                                Ontario also reported 2,063 new cases of COVID-19 on Saturday, up from 1,837 a day ago.

                                However, today’s numbers are over reported as Toronto Public Health logged 230 more cases from a previous date due to technical issues.

                                Provincial health officials recorded 2,093 new infections on Thursday and 1,670 on Wednesday.

                                The seven-day rolling average now stands at 1,968, down from 2,603 a week ago.

                                The latest fatalities mark a notable jump compared to the 58 deaths logged on Friday, 56 on Thursday and 49 on Wednesday.

                                Among the latest deaths, 24 are among long-term care home residents, according to the province's latest epidimiological summary. There have been 6,145 virus-related fatalities in Ontario since the pandemic began last March, 3,574 of those were long-term care home residents....
